Following a six-year hiatus since the premiere of the second season, the BBC has revealed that the procedural crime thriller series Happy Valley will return for a third and final season.
The new six-part series, which is expected to be the final season of the award-winning criminal thriller, will feature the return of the show’s main cast members like Sarah Lancashire and James Norton. This is the rest of what we know about Happy Valley Season 3.
Happy Valley Series 3 Air Date: When Will It Premiere?
After much anticipation, the BBC has finally announced that season three of Happy Valley will indeed be happening.
But enjoy it while you can, for this is the last season of the famous show.
Author Sally Wainwright said, “I’m happy to find myself back in the world of Catherine Cawood and her family and colleagues for the concluding installment of the Happy Valley trilogy.” It’s been amazing to see how much of an effect this series has made on people all over the world.
The release date for the next season is expected to be sometime in 2023; the earliest it could arrive is at the very end of 2022.
What Will Happen in Season Three?
In season three, Catherine will be working on a new murder investigation and will cross paths with her archenemy Tommy Lee Royce James Norton.
The BBC has released an official synopsis, which reads: “A sequence of events begins when Catherine finds the body of a gangland murder victim in a drained reservoir, and she ends up right back where she started: with Tommy Lee Royce.
“Ryan, her sixteen-year-old grandson, is still living with Catherine, but he has his own thoughts about how he wants to interact with the man she refuses to recognize as his father. Catherine is on the verge of retirement but is still fighting the seemingly intractable drug problem in the valley and its purveyors.”
Happy Valley Season 3 Cast: Who Will Star?
Sarah Lancashire’s return as Cawood, opposite James Norton’s deranged Tommy Lee Royce, is confirmed. Additionally, Catherine’s sister Claire, played by Siobhan Finneran, will be present for the upcoming episodes.
James remarked, “It’s been a dream of mine since we finished filming the last season six years ago to take on Tommy again. It’s a fantastic and terrifying privilege.”
Sarah, on the other hand, poked fun at the situation by saying, “It’s time to let the dog see the rabbit.”
Siobhan is just as ecstatic, declaring, “I’m so pleased to be returning to Happy Valley as Clare, and glad now to be able to answer the question: ‘Please tell me there’s going to be another Happy Valley???’ with a resounding: ‘Yes. there is.'”
New members of the team include Doctor Who’s Amit Shah, The Bay’s Mark Stanley, and Mollie Winnard (Four Lives). Each of the three will have significant parts to play in the drama.
Irish actress Charlie Murphy plays Nevison Gallagher’s daughter, Ann, and Con O’Neill plays Clare’s lover, the recovering alcoholic Neil Ackroyd. George Costigan reprises his role as Nevison, and Con O’Neill and Irish actress Charlie Murphy return as familiar figures.
Derek Riddell, Karl Davies, Susan Lynch, Rick Warden, Mike Taylor, Andy Shepherd, and Rhys Connah all reprise their roles as Richard Cawood, Daniel Cawood, Alison Garrs, and Ryan Cawood, respectively.
Happy Valley Season 3 Plot: What Will Happen?
According to the official plot summary, “Catherine discovers the bones of a gangland murder victim in a drained reservoir, setting in motion a series of circumstances that unknowingly brings her straight back to Tommy Lee Royce.”
“Ryan, her grandson, is now sixteen and still lives with Catherine, but he has strong opinions about how he wants to relate to the man she refuses to recognize as his father.
Catherine is “on the edge of retirement,” but she is still fighting the seemingly intractable drug problem in the valley and its purveyors.
Is Ryan going to learn more about Tommy and, more importantly, what he is capable of? Catherine’s daughter and Ryan’s mother was the one he raped, and she became pregnant as a result. As a result, she came to the decision to end her own life.
With retirement on the horizon, one must wonder if she will survive the transition out of the force. If there are one thing movies have taught us, it’s that the “one last job” a police officer has to undertake before retiring is the most perilous case they’ve ever faced.
Sarah was back in her police uniform in January 2022 when filming for the season began. So, let’s hope that’s an indication of the show’s success.
